Planned Murderhood And NOW Attack Whistle Blowers

From LAPIDESCLAMENT BLOG

Amidst the undercover videos, NOW defends Planned Parenthood, accusing CMP of the “Big Lie” technique – but who’s really using the “Big Lie” technique?

I recently came across the official statement of Terry O’Neill, who is president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), that defends Planned Parenthood in light of the undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood’s illegal work of harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. The full statement, entitled “Video Attacks on Planned Parenthood Don’t Fool Us And They Shouldn’t Fool Congress,” can be found here.

I was shocked by the accusation by O’Neill laid against the group that created and publicized the videos. She said,

We can’t—and we won’t—respond to every “attack of the day” video that spreads the lie that Planned Parenthood sells parts from aborted fetuses for profit.  This is the classic “Big Lie” technique of repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it.

O’Neill later concludes,

No one should be fooled by this campaign of lies, distortion and hate-fueled rhetoric.  The videos are phony and the accusations they contain will wither under scrutiny.  We’ve got enough phony news coming from the likes of Donald Trump.  Instead of giving oxygen to this video attack on Planned Parenthood, we should change the channel.

First of all, watch the videos. They speak for themselves. What lie are the investigators (The Center for Medical Progress, or CMP) speaking when it is Planned Parenthood’s senior staff and executives themselves who, plainly and simply, speak of collecting and selling body parts of aborted babies? Again, the videos speak for themselves. No wonder O’Neill says, “We can’t—and we won’t—respond to every ‘attack of the day’ video,” for the only next logical step would be admit the veracity of what’s said, not by CMP but by the confessions made by Planned Parenthood’s own executives.

As for the “Big Lie” technique, look who’s talking. I only gave a sample of O’Neill calling CMP liars, but it’s all over her statement. It is O’Neill, not CMP, who uses, in her words, “the classic ‘Big Lie’ technique of repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it.” Here’s O’Neill in her short statement “repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it” (the following emphases were added):

…an anti-abortion group purporting [emphasis added] to reveal unethical practices at Planned Parenthood…

…abortion opponents probably have gathered thousands of hours of deceptively gathered video…

Their ultimate goal is not simply to embarrass Planned Parenthood, but to concoct a tissue of lies that Congress can use to further roll back reproductive rights…

…“attack of the day” video that spreads the lie that Planned Parenthood sells parts from aborted fetuses for profit.

No one should be fooled by this campaign of lies, distortion and hate-fueled rhetoric.

The videos are phony

To O’Neill’s audience, I say, watch the videos and decide for yourself. But wait, O’Neill doesn’t want you to watch the videos: “Instead of giving oxygen to this video attack on Planned Parenthood, we should change the channel.” Instead of watching the videos, O’Neill only wants you to hear her “repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it.”

So who really is using the “Big Lie” technique: CMP or O’Neill?

  1. Of course they will claim the videos are phony and opponents of the murderers of children and some who also profit from the sale of their body parts are liars. They can’t admit their evil, can they?

  2. When we see good in evil and evil in good we are deceiving ourselves. I believe that many abortionist are demon possessed, especially after watching the videos and hearing the stories about how they work. God come to my assistance …

  3. I long to see the day when The Church really joins this battle … but I’m afraid that the timid Bishops will never move their limousines of leisure and questionable holiness to really engage this issue. With all the “Catholics” in the Congress, who outright support Planned Parenthood and the wanton, murderous elimination of in utero human life, not one bloody-handed legislator has been taken to task by the Church for their support of this nasty, nasty evil … nearly 55 MILLION abortions since 1972…… shameful, shameful, gutless, gutless ….
